Happy NewYear!


Happy 2008 everyone. I rang in the new year a little different than most years, bald. I began losing my hair on Thursday. Saturday night I washed my hair and it came out in HUGE handfuls. I had an appointment this coming Wednesday (Jan. 2) to get a short haircut so my hair loss wouldn't be so dramatic. I had to reschedule it for Monday (Dec. 31) because I already had bald spots by Saturday. Due to my patchy bald spots, I went for the gold and had my head shaved. There was really no alternative. My friend, Lori, took me to her hairdresser to get a pedicure, then get my hair cut. My mom and best friend, Amanda, also came to offer their support. So, here I am in all my bald glory.

Hey Mer!
You look so cute bald!
Very few people could pull it off, but you have a very shapely head. Hang in there, I know it's an adjustment. No hair just means one less thing to worry about.
Love you,
Carey

I love it!! Many a day we all want to do it. You rock!! And just think you could totally pull off the "I just really love Billy Corgan" gag :) Think of the fun !

Love you, Meredith, in all your shining glory. A King's daughter is all glorious within. Outward appearances mean nothing compared to your inner beauty!

Meredith - Your beauty shines through hair or no hair! Actually, you are a gorgeous bald woman! Your courage and spirit are dazzling and inspiring...
Thanks to you and Nick for starting this blog so that all of us who love you can "be with you".
May it be a happy New Year of healing!

Lots of Love from Kammie (and Grace!)

I knew you'd be even cuter! You wear it well!

You're always close in my thoughts and prayers. I hope these next 5 days won't be too hard for you...and that the chemo will, in fact, shrink the tumors so we can GET YOU WELL! =)

Much love to you! Jill
